Well hi all, I'm 'new', but not really that new, since I've been searching through XDA topics on many occasions for quite a few years now. Not sure why it took me so long to actually make an account, but here I am.
So about me - half geek, half creative, F/LOSS enthusiast for over 20 years, full time Linux user since 2006, interested in way to many subjects to ever become a specialist in any of them within at least a dozen of life spans. Hence I don't think I'll ever be able to call myself a developer, but hey, we'll see ;-)
 
Hello everyone, i'm back here after a long, long time

I used to read alot here when i was 10 - 15 but I think i switched to iOs during 2010s and i never really had my phone in the center of my occupations so i bought some macbook & iphone and i started to learn code. (mostly js)

I would be really happy to help users here, if i can, and discuss about my new device. ;) 2020s seems to be redditable as **** tbh, the xda lost kid became some kind of creative dev who's going back to the r00t

Thank you for everything I have read here over the last years!

More than anything, XDA is a community, and we're all here for different reasons.

Some are here to mod their phone--some joined just to ask a question. Or perhaps, like many, you joined so long ago, you have no idea why you're here (which is totally fine! we've been around for almost a decade). :cool: And we're in the process of making XDA more useful to everyone here now that we've moved to much better forum software.

But we'd love to know your XDA story: why are you here, and who are you? What's your day job, what phones do you have, where do you live, what do you like to do for fun? We'd love to get to know you!

Also, be sure to spend some time filling out your profile:


And also adding what phones you have to your inventory:


:cowboy: thanks and welcome. I'm one of the guys in charge and my DMs are always open if you ever want to chat or even complain.

Go ahead and make a new thread in this forum instead of replying to this post.

What's up,
I'm youngspeed and I'm here to further my knowledge on tech. But I also have a few questions.
  • 1 how do I sign in to the app because it redirects me to my browser to confirm authorization but when I do it takes me back to the XDA app but doesn't sign me in. (Update: I was able to sign in so I don't have a question about this anymore)
  • 2 does anyone know how to get Google Camera on the Samsung A10e without rooting or flashing because I have been trying but no success. If there is a way can you send the apk please?
  • And lastly how do I make a discussion? Thanks

Moto G7 Power
Hello. I have an LG expression 3 and a MotoG 7 power .i am here looking for a ROM or theme for both phones.
A while back I had an AOPk boot animation that was awesome and the alien ROM ( I think) . it had awesome fonts and icons. I was wondering if UI theme kitchen is still around and if either phone is rootable and or would be compatible with the theme kitchen. ?? Its been a while but I really hope you can help me find something . both phones are pretty plain and boring .

Well i like the internet especially for the opportunity to learn from others and share information with people that equaly appreciate the content as much as i do.

Here i gonna admid i am more on the newby side.. I played around with phones in the past. Mostly following up tutorials of people that really understand what they are doing... And this way i can create something with their help that me on my own would be hard to accomplish... We build on each other in different aspects of life and here i am appreciating to receive knowledge of the ones that are really into electronics/software/programming. ..

Its a strange, extremly complex but logic world that i find myself in when dealing with modifiying electronics .

Thanks for sharing this with me

Hi all,

I was in read-only mode for years and now I had to reply to a post. :)
I've got a Samsung S8, S20 FE, Chinese Android car head unit. I'm interested in Android apps to make my devices more usable, comfortable and so.

Thanks for everyone

Glad to have stumbled upon this wonderful community. Hope to consider myself a developer too very soon taking the wealth of resources here into consideration.

Will put substantial effort in abiding by all rules and regulations.

Hi,
I've just joined to find a solution for my update problem for my unlocked Att LG Velvet. I'm also interested in learning more about flashing firmwares, custom ROMs when the time comes.
Welcome to XDA!
Have a good read and enjoy!

Hi. I'm a french CS engineer and a Debian addict.

I systematically root all my phones and have a specialization in tuning the iptables to not talk to the GAFAMs. Rooted phones so far : Huawei codenames HAM, NEML51, old samsung phones, a couple of Wiko phones.

I've been following XDA-developers for a decade and decide now to onboard :
* Short-term goal : get some help on a very edge case involving dm-verity and kali nethunter on Nexus5X (bullhead)
* Long-term goal : wait patiently for the day when a full debian phone / ubuntu touch will be available at a relatively low price, and help all along

    Good day to all you gals and guys.
    I've used XDA forums in the past to try to answer various types of computer problems that I've had, and I'm sure that the content on here has helped me but I can't remember any specific occasions .... I'm an old git now 🧓
    My career was in IT, and although I've forgotten most of what I knew, this background helps me understand (eventually .... sometimes) what you modern techies out there knew from birth.
    So hopefully I'll get some help on here with my queries, and I look forward to a time when I may be able to contribute to an answer!
    Please be gentle with me 🙏

    Recently I got OnePlus 9 Pro, and have some battery drain problem, so I'll be hangin around OnePlus subforums, looking for solutions, suggestions...
    Except that, camera is very important to me, so I'll be in topics like that.

    My story? I'm not paying over $150 for a phone anymore. I am sick and tired of companies bricking phones and taking my cash when they're perfectly usable and up to spec. I registered a few minutes ago as I find this forum to be great for mainly the old(er) Samsung devices I buy. You flash a custom ROM on one of those old babies and you have yourself a new phone. My next plan to is to hunt down a Note 7, stick a safer S7 edge battery in it (as it's compatible) and have fun.
